Quiet, out of the way, stone built farmhouse, well placed to explore the Moray countryside, with good walks on the doorstep and all the facilities you need for a get away from it all break. Well decorated and updated kitchen and bathroom make the house a good base to explore from, well equipped too. Not too far from facilities in Forres (10 minutesRead more) or Nairn (20 minutes) for supermarkets and other shops. Wi-fi surprisingly good but mobile signal patchy for EE. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hide

Very spacious property which is really well equipped, especially with kitchen utensils etc. Location is quiet with some good walks into the forest and out to the beaches. We had a couple of questions whilst we were there and the owner was very responsive and helpful. As highlighted in the details, the garden is shared but there is plenty of space.

A large farmhouse surrounded by beautiful countryside. Decor and furnishings are a little plain and dated. Good facilities with washing machine and tumble dryer etc. Garden is shared with another let but is very large and well kept. Great for those travelling with dogs.

Very comfortable accommodation with superb beds and large bedrooms. The huge dining room table was great for us as we were in the area to see our grandchildren and their parents. You definitely need a car but its location is brilliant for touring the area.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
